Living in metro Atlanta, the world is your oyster when it comes to travel. Planes from 30 regional, domestic and international airlines take off every few minutes from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
That means there is a wealth of nonstop flight options to choose from when picking a vacation destination, whether you take a 27-minute hop to Augusta or a 15-hour long haul to Seoul, Korea.
For something in between those flight times, here are six destinations just one flight away.
Every second Friday night of the month, Mobile’s Lower Dauphin district comes alive with the LoDa ArtWalk, when thousands of people turn out to stroll the city sidewalks and take in an array of visual and performing arts while dining and drinking at a variety of local establishments. Now the event has a new interactive component with Roll Mobile, an invitation for participants to lace up their roller skates and zip around beneath a giant, sparkling disco ball to the beats of live music on Bienville Square . While you’re there, check out the city’s newest drinking hotspot, the rooftop deck of Greer’s St. Louis Market (260 St. Louis St., 251-305-4215), a full-service grocery store featuring local craft beers, a cafe and an array of to-go dishes. Local seafood and produce are featured at three new additions to the city’s culinary scene. The Hummingbird Way Oyster Bar (351 George St., 251-408-9562) serves the state dessert, bourbon-laced Lane Cake. The claim to fame at Southern National (360 Dauphin St., 251-308-2387) is its smoked chicken mini ravioli, and Squid Ink Eclectic Eats & Drinks (102 Dauphin St., 251-405-0031) has created a following for its Squid on a Shingle, featuring spicy calamari served on chargrilled bread.
